- “Life might be good now, but that’s all about to come to an end soon, and what then?” I’ve had a turbulent few months; surviving a gay bashing, dealing with my abusive parents, and getting used to my new life with my equally as new boyfriend. I could do without his best friend who doesn’t like me—or maybe he does? Life’s about to become even more turbulent though.

Especially not now when I see those signs in Alex; signs I never saw years ago in my dad. I’m not going to wait for the inevitable to happen. I’m approaching Alex—and I’m going to save his life.
